It's not a production colour, and it's too large for the British-made Cascade ones produced in a similar colour under license in the early 1970s. Lots of copies have been made by other companies over the last 40 years... but occasional oddities from Kastrup/Holmegaard are known... so it's near-imposible to tell without handling it.

Looks okay to me, shape, colour and height match the item number 40230 in the Kastrup Glasswork catalogue from 1964, here called cobalt blue in transparent glass.

You can see several Gulvvaser in many different colours on my homepage under Artglass, hit letter G and find Gulvvaser.

Cobalt is much much darker, surely?

I do have that catalogue page, but the colours in the copy are a little hard to make out properly - I've colour-corrected it as best I can (assuming no change in the Olive Green colour post-1965).

I also have a large Cobalt gulvvase, with what should be the original Kastrup label, and this is the normal dark cobalt blue.

The gulvvaser has been made in many different blue colours, the 1967-1973 Kastrup-Holmegaard Glasswork catalogue has the same transparent blue colour as dark blue and it is very simelary to the 1964 Kastrup Glasswork catalogue but there called cobalt blue.

The later catalogue from 1973-1976 Holmegaard catalogue has the colour as your vase photo but the colour is listed as dark blue transparent.

Only the oldest catalogue use the colour cobalt blue newer catalogue reffers the colour as dark blue.

Peter,

  Would you consider this color "rare"?

Are they not just the same colour with different names? I've never seen a transparent Kastrup or Holmegaard gulvvase in any blue colour other than this dark cobalt blue.

The vase in the original post looks more like Capri-blue, but is probably lighter even than that.

The blue colour through time are not the same but several shades of blue I would say from sky blue/ocean blue til the very dark blue.

In the 1973-1976 Holmegaard catalogue there are 3 colours statet as transparent out of the 6 colours present:

brun/brown/braun/brun transparent
mørkeblå/dark blue/dunkelblau/bleu foncé transparent
olivengrøn/olive green/olivgrün/vert olive transparent

Then there is full colour glass (or what it is called in English)

Gul opal/yellow opal
opalhvid/opal
koral opal/coral opal
